This is the time of year when one day feels like it could be your last sweet taste of summer, and the next is the first glimpse of fall. Teachers kiss their freedom goodbye, and parents welcome the peace and quiet into their home for the first time in months. Summer is coming to a close. But not without one more adorable flowery blue dress!!! This is the epitome of a FLORAL print dress! Miraculously, this dress is a one-size fits all! I was pretty nervous (especially because I ordered online), but was pleased when it arrived to find it really could fit all! Totally cute and feminine! Just the right dress to enjoy your last moments of summer in! And it could take you right into fall with a great over-sized sweater or a jean button up!
This adorable floral dress is from Sheinside. The amazing shoes are from Aldo (similar pair here). I just got this ring from The Limited– it was on sale (50% off!) and can go with anything! The clutch is also from the limited. It is old, so here is a similar one that throws in some black which I LOVE! Watch is from Francesca’s but is also old, so here is one from express that is great too!
It has been just about a year since Ryley and I became homeowners for the first time! When we started looking for a home in which to begin our life together, we knew one thing- we wanted OUT of the city! We wanted to TOTALLY get away from the hustle and bustle and to wake up each morning to a gentle breeze blowing across the countryside. The only problem- we also wanted a house with modern amenities. We ended up in the quaint small town of Ashippun, Wi. It is a perfect blend of the two things we wanted- it is totally country, but we live in a small neighborhood where we found a newer built home. Now that we are settled here, one of our favorite things to do is to take walks at night after dinner. This is when we often talk about our future, our dreams, and learn about the intricate thoughts that make each of us tick. SOO important! The other night, on one of our walks, I noticed that the farmer in our neighborhood had just freshly cut his hay field. We HAD to sneak in for a few pics in one of the most romantic white dresses you can possibly imagine!!! It has small white textured dots on it, an incredible neckline and a crazy-cute bow around the waste! It is a soft, light fabric- so chic and comfortable! I paired this intricate dress with a pair of blush feminine heals and a matching blush purse. I just love the gold accents on the purse!! It is an amazing shape and is just the right size for an every day piece! My favorite part of the outfit is actually the earrings! They are vintage earrings that pull the whole look together and really emphasize the romantic textures in the dress. This might be the MOST ROMANTIC outfit I could ever find!! It is sooo sweet and sentimental!! There is just something about the ivory and the textures- this dress is all kinds of pretty!
Photos taken by my husband in Ashippun, Wi. This incredible dress is from Ann Taylor. The shoes are from Famous Footwear (old- similar pair here at Aldo). Purse is from The Limited (similar here). The earrings were purchased at forever 21- these are a MUST HAVE- so versatile and yet so detailed (I love this pair! Or these! This pair is the closest to what I am wearing above! Also very close!)
Enjoy an evening out in this beautiful, soft, romantic ensemble!
